  • Son of a Miami legend vying to be backup to quarterback Brad Kaaya

    The Miami walk-on quarterback who wears No. 14 on his orange jersey is not some anonymous teenager taking reps every now and then. Neither is the young man competing with him to back up one of the nation’s top signal-callers. With the Hurricanes’ opener against FAMU a week from Saturday, Vincent Testaverde – the son of 1986 UM Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde – is vying to be the No. 2 man behind standout Brad Kaaya. And so is Malik Rosier – the scholarship quarterback who led UM to the miracle win at Duke last season. “I was of course nervous at first,’’ Testaverde said Tuesday after practice, then added that when he was told late last week he “was going to be competing for the No. 2 spot,

  • Billy Bush on Ryan Lochte's Robbery Lie: 'Did He Besmirch America's Character? Yes'

    Billy Bush is opening up about his now-infamous interview with swimmer Ryan Lochte about his fabricated robbery in Rio. Yes, it was an unfortunate thing for us, because it was such a sideshow for the second week of the Olympics," Bush said during a SiriusXM Today Show sit-down. Bush was the first to track down Lochte for an interview after the swimmer's mother, Ileana Lochte, told USA Today that her son and some of his teammates had been held up during a night out in Rio.

  • Jered Weaver will decide if he wants to retire after the season is over

    Jered Weaver is in the last year of his five-year, $85 million contract with the Angels. He’s also just barely hanging on. To the extent he is succeeding — and he has had his moments — it’s almost all on guile given that his velocity has almost completely abandoned him. Could he hang on a while longer? Probably. Guile aint’ nothing and there are worse pitchers than Weaver, but if he’s going to keep going it will almost certainly be as a year-to-year guy fighting for a job every winter and fighting for a roster spot every spring. Some guys, especially guys who have made their money, may want to retire at that point. Weaver isn’t necessarily ruling it out, but he isn’t making any final decisions

  • Report: Lakers will sign No. 2 pick Brandon Ingram on Tuesday

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) When Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden were hired to take over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the expectation within in the organization and around the NBA was that they were coming in to make significant changes to a franchise with the longest-running playoff drought in the league. Ricky Rubio heard his name floated in the constant trade rumor mill, never more than after the Wolves selected Providence’s Kris Dunn, another point guard, with the fifth overall pick in the June draft. Rubio remained quiet throughout the summer, putting all of his focus into grieving the loss of his mother and then joining his national team to prepare for the Olympics. Now that the Rio Games have concluded and Rubio has earned a bronze medal with Spain, he said he is looking forward to returning to Minnesota to work with Dunn and reiterated his desire to remain with the Timberwolves and help turn them into a winner.

  • NASCAR says Bristol treatment to track is ‘not the last you’ve seen of that’

    Kevin Harvick says that what Bristol Motor Speedway did to its track surface to create two lanes of racing should be done at other tracks. Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer, said Monday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio that what Bristol did is “certainly not the last you’ve seen of that.’’ Bristol treated its lower groove with a substance similar to what is used on the starting area in drag racing to help tires gain grip. NASCAR said resin was then put on the track after Wednesday’s Camping World Truck Series race and Friday’s Xfinity Series race. Previously, running the lower groove at Bristol proved slower than the top groove. With the additional

Roker didn’t accept any of Bush’s explanations for Lochte’s actions and repeated over and over that everything the swimmer had said was a lie.

Johnson was not happy with the way the Olympics affected the pros' schedule this summer and said he might support Olympic golf if amateurs played and if the tournament existed in a team format.

  • This Olympic Silver Medalist Made a Gesture That Could Get Him Arrested or Even Killed

    Ethiopian marathon runner Feyisa Lilesa scored big for his country at the 2016 Olympics, getting a silver medal in the men's marathon by completing the race in two hours, nine minutes, and 54 seconds. The "X" was a gesture of solidarity with the Oromo people, the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia, who have been killed by the hundreds in government crackdowns on protests, according to the Washington Post. "The Ethiopian government is killing my people, so I stand with all protests anywhere, as Oromo is my tribe," Lilesa said at a press conference.

  • Lawyer says comments from Colts' Pat McAfee show Hall of Fame Game fraud

    Last week, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced an increased reimbursement package for fans who traveled to Canton, Ohio to see the Hall of Fame game, only to have it canceled due to field conditions. Attorney Michael Avenatti, who has hinted at filing a claim that the Hall and the NFL defrauded fans, believes he’s found a smoking gun, so to speak, that the league and Hall officials knew the game wouldn’t be played but let the thousands of fans into the stadium anyway. Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee recorded a podcast the day after the game was supposed to be held, and said, among other things, that “There was a big ‘no tweeting’ policy, like nobody’s allowed to say (expletive)” among instructions given to teams after they were told of the cancellation.

    By punching and bulldozing their way onto the scene just a few short years after their acceptance into the league, the Flyers earned their nickname and thrived on the fear that they put into the hearts and minds of their opponents in the old days. It took them six games to take down the Buffalo Sabres and successfully defend their title in 1975, but it was a Game 3 overtime loss that stands alone in its level of weird. During a stoppage in the first period at Buffalo Memorial Auditorium, the Flyers and Sabres were joined by an unruly fan that was apparently unhappy with its upper level seating and decided to get a closer look at the action.
